Students' body in PoK holds massive protest rally demanding freedom from Pakistan

08/19/2017

NEW DELHI, Aug. 19: A massive rally has been organised by the Jammu Kashmir National Students Federation in Jandali area of PoK (Pakistan-occupied Kashmir) to demand freedom from Pakistan. 

Local leader Liyaqat Khan said, "Pakistan sends terrorists here to ruin this peaceful place". In a video shared by ANI, the protestors are seen raising pro-freedom slogans and raising banners to demand freedom from Pakistan.

This is not the first time that demands of freedom from Pakistan have been raised from the troubled region. In the past as well, anti-Pakistan protests have taken place across Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK). The Pakistani forces have been accused of committing human rights violations and inflicting atrocities on the people of PoK.  

On April 24, 2017, hundreds of locals in Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir's Kotli area took to the streets to protest against the forcible land-grabbing by Pakistan Army. The protesters raised anti-Pakistan army and anti-Pakistan government slogans.

 

On February 5, 2017, Islamabad observed the annual Kashmir Solidarity Day in support of the Kashmiri people. Enraged at Pakistan's high-handedness and denial of basic human rights in their region, PoK residents took to the streets to express their ire at the corridors of power in Islamabad.

PoK residents claimed that the Pakistani government, via its intelligence agency Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) and the administration, was committing atrocities on innocent citizens.

On October 22, 2016, Kashmiris across PoK held a protest demanding immediate withdrawal of the Pakistani forces from their territory.

The Pakistani Army on October 22, 1947, disguised as tribal invaders, attacked Jammu and Kashmir, killing thousands of people. The tribals, known as Kabailies, were employed by Pakistan to change the demography of Jammu and Kashmir by executing genocide on the people. It was an attack by Pakistani Pathans on the Kashmiri people.

On October 24, 2015 as well,  a'Black Day' was observed in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK). An 'anti-Pakistan' protest was organised by the National Students Federation.

In April, 2016, anti-Pakistan protests erupted in various parts of Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK) over Islamabad's discrimination in employment to local youth.

The protesters raised issues regarding lack of jobs in PoK where the Pakistani youth were being preferred to Kashmiri youth.

About 100 individuals owing allegiance to Jammu and Kashmir National Students Federation (JKNSF), along with some members of Jammu and Kashmir National Awami Party (JKNAP), carried out a demonstration rally in Muzaffarabad area of PoK, condemning the oppressive rule by Pakistani authorities and the local PoK government.

The protesters carried placards which read "Kashmir Bachanay Nikley Hain, Aao Hamaray Saath Chalo".

PoK has witnessed a series of protests by residents in the past against the Pakistan government for the atrocities and human rights violation by Pakistani forces.INDIATODAY.IN
